This is an original poster promoting an early concert for the Washington DC post-punk band Fugazi. Former Minor Threat frontman Ian MacKaye was a key ingredient during the first couple years of Fugazi. The band received an early cult following of art punk & metal fans during the late 1980's which carried their popularity along for several decades. Here they are featured at the Pine Street Theatre in Portland during late May of 1989. These posters were produced in tiny quantities for small venues on very short notice. We definitively know from printing records and first hand accounts by artist Mike King that these posters were issued in quantities of 25 – 750 with the most common print runs being just 175 250 or 350!
